The One To Die Alone



Being a technomancer was difficult, but it was easier with a superhero father, and a mutant mother and brother. Adopted, but family nonetheless. Tony Stark, adopted by Ororo Munroe and T'Challa, along with his adopted brother Kurt Wagner, is a technomancer, and stresses over running the family business of Stark Industries, dealing with inter-dimensional lovers and his powers, well, life isn't exactly easy; add alcoholism in an attempt to numb himself with genius, and you get a right mess. No matter how much support his family gives him, Tony still struggles and it's angering to know that he can't help but feel alone in a world where everyone likes him, fake or not. Loki and his tormented soul, that Tony is irrevocably drawn to, doesn't help much either.

A Hot Mission & Bowling

Wedding Bell Blues



Tony and Loki have staggered home from Britain still licking their emotional and physical wounds. All they'd really like to do is relax and be together as a family with their kids, but instead Loki has to start his new job, the Stark Industries Board of Directors are insisting on their Howard-mandated right to approve Tony's spouse, the Avengers are (if you ask Tony) acting like a bunch of spoiled brats (and so is J.A.R.V.I.S.), and on top of that the alterations to Tony's tuxedo aren't done and the caterer just quit. Can things ever run smoothly for a genius inventor and a god of mischief?

Follows within about four days of Long Ago, and in Another Country.

Sensitive reader warning: Tony and Loki, especially in the first part of this installment, are still dealing with the abuse in their pasts, sadness over their loss in the previous story, physical illness and bigotry in the world around them. If you think that's something you can handle, I'm delighted, and I cordially invite you to read on. If you just want the part with the wedding, read the last two chapters and nothing else.

The Way Things Change



When Anthony was told by his father as a young Jotun to befriend Prince Loki, he just wanted to make his father proud and so he had happily complied. Years later, when his father told Anthony to court Loki in order to become his consort, Anthony had refused and instead told the prince of the plot. Anthony never would have expected how much that single act of honesty would change everything.
